    Anyone do beadwork in here? Help!

    I'm looking for a pattern for a 3d crystal star and not having any luck on boards actually dedicated to that.

    Figured I'd give it a shot here.

    I have pictures of what I'm looking for I can link to if need be.

    Thanks!

    I do beading on a loom. Is that what you're talking about? If you have a picture, you can put it in paint, stretch it in the right direction, and then print it on a grid.

    No, I know what you mean, I used to do that with seed beads.

    I'm talking 3d. Here's a link to an example: http://www.crystalbeadsofboston.com/images/classes/crystal.star.jpg

    Oh cool! No, I haven't done those. Have you done an internet search?

    Hours of searching.

    I found 3 patterns. One is in Chinese and though I managed to make a different piece from the same website without needing a translation, the star is more difficult and I'm not getting it strictly by picture alone.

    Another I made but it's designed for round beads and I want to use bicones. It didn't translante 100%.

    Another is a variation on the 2nd one I described.

    The one I linked to is a variation on the Chinese one. Maybe I'll revisit that one and see if it makes any sense when using an online translator.

    I was just going to suggest that. I use babelfish. If it's Chinese characters, maybe you can copy and paste.

    Try searching Eni Oki Jewelry. She is an amazing artist and has some free and some for fee tutorials on her lessons website.

    Good Luck!

    Try this website. They have classes on the beaded heart. Maybe they can email you the instructions on the star.
